Trump The Animal Lover? ‘The Greatest Equipment In The World Is A Dog’

He doesn’t have a pet in the White House like most of his predecessors, but President Trump is apparently a big fan of dogs. During an anti-opioid event in Atlanta on Wednesday, President Trump discussed the need to reduce the flow of drugs, specifically heroin and opioids, into the U.S. through the border. While praising his promised border wall and the new equipment that’s been installed at the border to detect drugs, he paused for a moment to talk about how “great” dogs are at sniffing out...

in which we discover kai is houdini

A new fence, eh? Not so fast!One minute the dogs are on their side of the fence, barking at a woman walking her dog past the house. The next minute, Kai is playing with the dog, on the street.Of course Kai completely ignored our calls. Her training is going really well, but it would be too much expect her to come back in these circumstances -- training too new, distraction too interesting. So we have to run in the back door, grab her leash, and run out the front door. By the time we got outside,...

4 Steps To Treat Separation Anxiety In Dogs

Jennifer of FOMO bones has written a very practical article on how to treat anxiety in dogs and has kindly shared it with us. As a dog owner, dealing with canine separation anxiety and distress can sound like a daunting task. When you become a dog parent, you never even think about the potential behavioral issues that might arise and the thought of having a dog that struggles with anxiety almost seems slightly absurd. The reality is, though, that at one point or another during your life of ...

in which two humans figure out how to make a yard safe for canines

We did it! We closed the gaps in our partially fenced yard, in a way that looks decent, was within our budget, and within our skill set.First we researched online, and eliminated many possibilities.Then we simplified the project by choosing the least number of gaps to close that would still give the dogs a nice-sized area to play in, and by not having a gate.After investigating local options, we drove five hours round-trip to the Home Depot in Campbell River to buy materials, and visited an off-...

'That's not a bag': man with dog bends New York subway rule and gets denied

MTA rules state dogs must be ‘enclosed in a container’ but one conductor seems to think a dog in a sack pushes that definitionIn 2016, the Metro Transit Authority (MTA) in New York banned people from bringing their pets on the subway. The only exception was for animals “enclosed in a container and carried in a manner which would not annoy other passengers”.But New Yorkers love a loophole, and so while the MTA probably meant dogs carried in purpose-built crates, subway riders quickly got inventiv...
